Galaxy S4 KitKat update schedule

The dust may have only just settled with the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S4, but owners already have their eye on the next iteration, which will more than likely encompass Android 4.4.2 as well. As you probably know, the Android 4.4 update process was relatively painless and the 4.4.1 update was primarily designed to patch some issues with the Nexus 5. 4.4.2 came only a week later.

Reverting Android 4.3 back to 4.1.2

Even after all this time, there are still issues with the Android 4.3 update from Samsung. We published a guide to downgrade from Android 4.3 back to 4.1.2, but if you have any problems or questions, join this thread, whether it's nerves, questions, locked bootloaders or the dreaded AT&T brick.

TouchWiz Home has stopped/Gallery share force close issue

Another persistent Android 4.3 issue on Samsung devices, these two appeared a lot following he stability patch update. As one member memorably put it: Samsung fixed one problem to replace it with another. If you're experiencing any issues on the Android 4.3 firmware, let us know and we'll try to help fix it.
